Groundhog Day: Bill Murray made two appearances in our bracket, once in this classic 90s comedy, once in Rushmore, and three or four more of his films could have easily been included. Groundhog Day destroyed two worthy opponents in This is Spinal Tap and Annie Hall to get to the Final Four. Take a look at our Groundhog Day quotes page for more.
